Off the Hook

Ever get stuck just getting started?
Like I wrote about recently?
And then you get to feeling overdue in meeting a perceived obligation?
Like you really need to do something you keep putting off?

Yeah, me, too. Like this blog post.

WordPress ever so kindly reminds me it’s been 4 days — FOUR DAYS — since I last posted. Preferring to post every other day or so, I don’t mind slipping to 3 days. But then it’s four. And then it’s the evening of the 4th day since I posted and the piece I ‘m writing still isn’t ready and…
and…

AND I HAVETA POST SOMETHING!

Yep, we’ve all been there. All too often. Stuck between feeling the need to do something immediately (or maybe even yesterday!) while still unready to actually do it.

Round here, we call it the “haveta hook.”

So, this here post with picture is me wriggling free of that hook for today to get back to writing the next “real” post coming up in a day or two.

Maybe three.

But I’ll be back before another 4 days pass, that’s for sure!
